ZFS, which is short for Z File System, is a progressive file system that provides better performance for sites and online applications. One of its main advantages is the real-time checksum comparison - every file has a checksum, or a digital fingerprint, and ZFS compares the checksums of all files between the different hard disks operating together within a RAID. If any file is corrupted for whatever reason on one of the hard disks, it is repaired from another travel with the correct checksum. Thus, the integrity of any file saved on a server is ensured all of the time. ZFS also works faster than other file systems, that enables backups to be created much faster and without slowing down the general performance of the entire server. Additionally, ZFS does not have a set limit for the total number of files which can be stored on a server while all other file systems have some limit that may cause problems eventually, especially for script apps that have a lot of files.
ZFS Cloud Storage, Mails, MySQL in Website Hosting
Considering all the advantages that ZFS has over other file systems, it is not a surprise that we have chose to employ it on the cutting-edge cloud platform on which your new website hosting
account shall be set up. Our custom setup and the Hepsia CP make this possible since the other widely used control panels cannot work on ZFS. The result of our work is a way quicker and efficient web hosting service - we will store your files, databases and e-mails on ZFS-powered machines that come with huge amounts of RAM and solid state drives which will deliver the best possible speed for your sites. We also take advantage of the much faster backup generation which ZFS offers, so we shall keep 4 different copies of all your files, databases and e-mails every single day without influencing the performance of the hosting servers - something which firms employing other file systems are not able to offer. Each and every web server from the storage clusters also has a backup machine and the ZFS file system enables us to have the most up-to-date copy of your content on both places - a good copy, of course. This way, if a server fails, we could switch to its backup in seconds, so your sites shall be up and running at all times and you'll never have to be concerned about the integrity of your files or about the stability of your hosting server.
